    The historical moment this photo belongs to is the Revolución de los Claveles, which took place in Portugal, the 25th April 1974. Portugal had been under a dictartorship since the 1920s, and after this military uprising it became a democratic state.

    This picture was taken in Portugal during the “red carnation revolution”. This revolution was an uprising from the civilians and low ranking officers from the army to finish with the dictatorship of António de Oliveira Salazar (1926-1974). One soldier asked a woman if she had cigarettes, she said no and she gave him a carnation. That was the beginning. After that every soldier was carrying a carnation, the symbol of that revolution, of their freedom. The woman was called Celeste Martins Caseiro.
    There is a film based on this story called “Capitães de Abril” and a song that is a symbol nowadays.

    Revolución de los claveles ( Carnation revolution) : Portugal, 25 April 1974.

    The Carnation Revolution, also referred to as the 25 April , was initially a military coup in Lisbon, Portugal, on 25 April 1974, which overthrew the regime of the Estado Novo, which ruled in Portugal since the 28 of May 1926. His founder, António de Oliveira Salazar, was replaced in 1968, because of a domestic accident, by Marcelo Caetano. The government was a Parliamentary authoritarian single-party republic. The revolution started as a military coup organized by the Movimento das Forças Armadas (Armed Forces Movement, MFA), composed of military officers who opposed the regime, but the movement was soon coupled with an unanticipated and popular campaign of civil resistance. This movement would lead to the fall of the Estado Novo and the withdrawal of Portugal from its African colonies and East Timor. Portugal became a Democratic State.
    This revolution was successful and not too bloody. It has this name because when the population took to the streets to celebrate the end of the dictatorship and war in the colonies, carnations were put into the muzzles of rifles and on the uniforms of the army. Nowadays, the Portuguese celebrate the national holiday of Freedom Day on 25 April every year to celebrate the revolution.
